Georgia Tech is a great institute to attend! Overall, Tech is a positive learning environment with peers who lift each other up. It is competitive, but the competition is used to better each student and not "outcompete" them. My semester was filled with COVID-19 protocol, so my experience was different, but overall a good one if not for the pandemic.

I would like to recommend Georgia Tech(GT) to prospective student due to several attractive experiences. As its name showed, the school is to focused on enhancing disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics so that many students can have numerous chances to be involved in intensive education and professional researches. In addition, the GT has offered one of the largest career fair which bridges between academia and industry. Thus, GT students easily experience to apply for co-op, internship and full-time positions every semester from hundreds of companies. In fact, most of GT alumni have been offered by employer before they graduate. Lastly, GT students can experience many club activities in terms of cultural diversity, athletics, and professional leadership. On campus, I have been involved in diverse student organizations such as Student Government Association (SGA), Korean American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA) and Archery club.
Even in harsh condition due to COVID-19, most of faculty in Georgia Tech, they made significant efforts to design online courses and successfully switched courses from offline to online. At first, some of student concerned about quality of teaching due to changes. However, our faculty already prepared themselves for online classes in advance before spread of COVID-19 so that they have improved and developed online distant learning system for last 10 years. Their efforts finally paid off and many GT students including undergraduate and graduate were able to continue their academic plans without a hitch. In the future, our smart faculty and students will collaborate to advance online learning systems based on lessons we learned in these days.
